Jacopo Gianninoto is a guitarist and lutenist from Italy.

Jacopo Gianninoto is a guitarist, lutenist and composer from Italy now based in Bangkok. He started playing music when he was 5 years old and then graduated from the Conservatory "A. Pedrollo" in Vicenza while studying also at the Conservatory "C. Pollini" in Padua (Italy). During his career he published several books and recordings, and gave recitals, concerts and master classes in many countries around the world. He also regularly collaborate with international music and artistic institutions such as Fondazione Levi, Opera Siam, Assumption University of Thailand, Bel Teatro, Urban Bones Dance, B-Floor Theatre, All-Soul Theatre. The main focus of his performance research, beside his own music, is “Historical Performance Practice” and he dedicates himself to the study and interpretation of the early repertoire with original instruments. His approach is that of a “Historically Informed Performance” but at the same time trying to use the principles that guided the creativity of those artists from the past applied in a XXI Century context to create new works of art and not simply a “museum” performance. He is the creator and director of several artistic multidisciplinary projects such as “Baroque Me Baby”, “Renaissance Redux”, “The Praise of Folly”, “Romance is a hoax” “one/one performance”, “The Giordano Bruno Project”, “Lux In Tenebris”, “Please don’t entertain me”, “Chiaroscuro”, “Herometic”, “Mythos”, “Time Travelers” and many more. His composing activity focuses on the idea of creating music of the 21st century with ancient instruments such as Lute and Baroque Guitar, and with an improvisation “spirit” that comes in connection to his renaissance and baroque musical studies, often involving also works of visual artists, dancers, actors and writers for original collaborations developing the same concepts from different artistic perspectives, as for example his collaboration with legendary writer S.P. Somtow.
